Review summary

I have traveled trips all inclusive before and like I said this was my first cruise. If I was you I would try both. The cruise is nice and I don't regret trying it.

We didnt get to take our wine because although it was labeled wine it was 17.5 % and they said that it couldnt be over 15%. Please keep that in mind when you purchase your wine. they also threw out my juices because they were in sealed plastic bottles instead of cans.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The drinks are very expensive about 10.00 a drink. If you are at a show and they come around asking you if you would like a drink I would go to the bar right behind you and get it yourself because if not they add gratuity to every drink that they just carry to you.

Onboard Activities

The pools were nice, wish they were a little bigger though.

The comedy shows were the best. They are free and funny. The bingo is about 40 bucks for the regular bingo player to play and you only play 3 games. To hit the jackpot you have to win in 49 numbers or less. To all regular bingo players we know how hard that can be.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was unbelievably excellent. They were wonderful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship is older so it could probably use some updating. The rooms were a little small meaning there is a bed and a small walkway beside the bed and then the wall.

Madre took great care of us and he was there whenever we needed anything. He really takes his job serious and is very pleasant.

Ship tip

We had a medical emergency on our ship so one of our stops got cancelled. It was the stop at Grand Turk. They took us to Nassau instead. I dont think it is right that they take you to somewhere that doesnt compare at all to where you were supposed to go. I understand emergencies. Maybe consider giving some of the money back or finding somewhere compatable.
